  • Upgraded my ratings by one star. The food is good and there is no smoking. But the casino still isn't really gambler friendly. None are but this one goes out of its way to reduce the odds in their favor. Although there are some friendly staff there but I have run into the "attitude" quite often there. Almost feels like you're back in high school and they are the principal.
  • Four of us ate at the Prime and we all really enjoyed it. Great specialty burgers and if you’re not into the specialty’s created by the chef’s you can create your own. The milk shakes and deserts are about the best I’ve had. We were seated immediately and the atmosphere was casual but very clean. Nice place to watch a game on the many TV screens, have a few cocktails and enjoy a great meal for real reasonable prices.
  • Vey nice and charming casino. They give gifts for birthdays and first timers. The food is awesome. The prices are inflated, but I guess that's to be expected. The equipment is updated and easy to use and this is one of the safest places to hang out in Elgin. Oh, and more importantly you win sometimes.
  • Best local casino in the area. Friendly staff and you cannot beat the food quality not the pricing at the Prime restaurant... Winning or losing money there is the same of course but nice surroundings...
  • I personally love this place. It was non smoking and clean. Perfect. Nice restaurants inside. The main parking structure a slight hassle. Dealers were friendly. Slightly smaller place which I personally liked.
